I like to call Matt my master drink maker. He would make an awesome bartender and loves to come up with new recipes. He is great at taking our favorite drinks and decreasing the calories and coming up with a skinnier alternative.
|Awesome hubby in the kitchen|
We have done the Peppermint Bark Martini, the Skinny Coconut Mojito, vodka soda water and now the Skinny Margarita. The secret to our skinny margarita is actually the orange juice. I watched Matt squeeze an entire bag of oranges and he did say his hand was going to fall off. We also had orange juice that was just natural oranges and no added sugar. So you can use that instead of fresh squeezed oranges.
So to make your drink more tart add more lime juice. If you want it sweeter add more orange juice and simple syrup. You can play with the recipe to get it to your liking. The tip to keeping your calories in check is to drink 1 full glass of water in between your drinks and limit yourself to 2. Even though it's LOWER calorie its still high in sugar and if you are really focusing on results then you are going to have to be very careful.
Makes 2 drinks.
- 1/4 cup Lime juice
- 1 cup Fresh Squeezed Oranges
- Splash of simple syrup (organic)
- 1/4 cup Tequila Milagro
- Splash of LaCroix Sparkling Water in Lime Flavor
Mix it in a shaker cup and pour of ice! ENJOY!!!
